Roswell, New Mexico Poster: A New Love Story Takes Flight at The CW

at .

Roswell, New Mexico premieres in just over a month at The CW. 

As such, the network is ramping up the promotional train and has unveiled a brand new poster for the series. 

What it shows is the drama's core couple Liz (Jeanine Mason) and Max (Nathan Parsons) getting close, and there's a beautiful backdrop to boot.

"Make Contact" is a perfect addition to the poster because it can be interpreted in many ways what with Max being an alien. 

Roswell, New Mexico is the second television adaptation of Roswell High book series by Melinda Metz. 

The first TV series aired from 1999-2002, and last three seasons. Despite having a devoted fan base, it had low ratings, prompting The WB to cancel, but UPN swooped in to give the series another shot at life. 

But UPN also opted to cancel it because the ratings continued to dwindle.

What is this new version about?

Here's the official logline:

After reluctantly returning to her tourist-trap hometown of Roswell, New Mexico, the daughter of undocumented immigrants discovers a shocking truth about her teenage crush who is now a police officer: he’s an alien who has kept his unearthly abilities hidden his entire life.

She protects his secret as the two reconnect and begin to investigate his origins, but when a violent attack and long-standing government cover-up point to a greater alien presence on Earth, the politics of fear and hatred threaten to expose him and destroy their deepening romance.

Obviously, there are parallels to the first adaptation, but there are some changes thrown in there for good measure. 

While The CW has rebooted many shows over the years, Roswell, New Mexico might stand a better chance at success than Charmed (2018)

There hasn't been controversy surrounding this reboot for a start, and Shiri Appleby, who played Liz on the 1999-2002 series even came on board to direct an episode.

Roswell, New Mexico was developed by Carina Adly Mackenzie who penned some of the best episodes of The Originals, so the show is definitely in good hands. 

Then there's the cast.
